The Office of Religious Education offers engaging lessons that lead to higher levels of moral thinking and a deeper initiation into a life of prayer. Through exploration, discovery, and decision-making, Catholics are invited to accept the challenge to follow Jesus, learn and practice the skills needed to be active witnesses. The programs offer catechumenal methodology, using reflection on Scripture and doctrine, plus a prayer celebration in every class and during all the major seasons of the Church year. The programs aim to initiate the community of faith and challenges them to look at Scripture stories and their relevance in a new way, that begs a story to be told — and told again.
